I will help you find the perfect grinder for your dog no matter the breed or appetite. There are grinders for all kinds of meat and if you seek to add bones into your dog’s raw diet plan there are grinders for that as well.
Electric or manual grinder for raw feeding?
There are two main differentiators between electric and manual meat grinders. These being the work you have to put in and the cost. One goes up and the other one goes down. If you planning on using soft poultry meat and bones it is worth considering getting a hand crank meat grinder but if you are going to be grinding red meats that are thicker and dense bones It is without a doubt worth buying a heavy-duty meat grinder powered by electricity.
